A Hedge - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Life is exquisitely beautiful
Its moments quite wonderful
As man labors for subsistence
So free to live well his existence

Contentment is a man's quest
At own freewill to take the test
To savor happiness and success
Free to desire all things to possess

Along the way of innate endeavor
When everything seems excite favor
Yet upon reaching almost at the edge
Final challenges emerge as the hedge

The struggle in life is a never ending
Like the ocean waves constantly flashing
Into the shores to commit its ultimate pledge
But the sands stand over always as the hedge
